I don't feel particularly strongly about it being fixed by a DSA as we
have a workaround (though the patch I included previously is incorrect
and broken; the patch in RT appears to work).

That being said, ikiwiki (packaged) appears to use CGI::Session so I
would be surprised if it was not affected, assuming it uses the same
session storage driver.
